ADA and Parking
Nobody wants to be the parking professional who's known for all the broken equipment on his lot. Nobody wants to be the one whose exit booths are inadequately staffed after a big event. And nobody--but nobody--wants to be the person in charge of the parking that racked up all the ADA violations.
That's all well and good, but few regulations are as confusing and have as many potential potholes as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). It's an integral part of every parking operation, from design to enforcement, but as seen by recent traffic on the C-PARK L listserv, there are still more questions than answers out there.
It's time to blow away the fog and take a clean look at ADA and parking. Join moderator Doug Holmes, founder of C-PARK L, and panelists Linda Kauffman, Bill Kavanagh, and Teresa Trussel for an information-packed presentation on ADA's political challenges in municipal parking, common mistakes that trigger non-compliance, and recent changes that affect old and new spaces.
